BreezeFigs Quick-Pix, Saturday, April 4th


Before we get to the business of Pix, we have a major announcement: There are two BreezeFigs sheets for each date, one for the 3-year-olds from the 2008 sales (to be posted through June 30th), and one for the 2-year-olds from the 2009 sales. The 2009 sales sheet has a major addition in the SALE column: It's now labeled SALE & HIP, the HIP referring to the catalogue number for that horse in that sale. This reference will enable you to go to the website of the sales company involved and easily find the short video of the horse's breeze at that sale.

The web links for each sale are listed in the NOTES section of the 2009 BreezeFigs Report and you will find all the information as to why we have done this and how you can benefit from this addition to the service by downloading the document which explains it all here:

Remember, no other handicapping service can give you the advantages you need from 2-year-old sales, so sign up for DRF-Plus on the front page of and get the BreezeFigs cards.

Though one of our Pix last week was scratched and the other crawled home fourth, there were plenty of winners on that card and during the week as well. To kick off the 2-year-old season and to check out the way our new video links work, we're including the only race on the 2009 card as our Pick this week. Good luck!

Keeneland, , Maiden Special Weight, 4&frac12 Furlongs (Synthetic)

Here we go-a 2-year-old who does not appear in the PPs as having breezed at a sale this year shows up for the first baby race at Keeneland Five Plus Five, who was bought back (RNA) for 47k a couple of weeks ago at OBSMAR. She earned a very decent Group 2 BreezeFig profile in that quarter-mile breeze, showing a 25+ SL that was almost a 1&frac12 feet longer than average for fillies at that distance that day and she did it on synthetic. When you go to the OBS website to view her breeze, choose Video Index under the March sale information and the page you get will have Video Index by HIP at the top click on that and scroll down to HIP #166 and either save the video (right click on the Windows Media Player icon) or stream it (left click). DO NOT click on the Video Index Continuous links below. You'll see how she moves and that she did it in 21 and change, and she looks like a filly looks like who could be competitive here (and nobody but BreezeFigs customers will know she just came out of a 2-year-old sale). Good luck!

Our rules still hold about BreezeFigs qualified runners: You can get a good idea of what qualified BreezeFigs horses are by clicking on BreezeFigs Information underneath the two BreezeFigs links in the DRF-PLUS box in the right hand column on the home page and downloading files there. Remember, keep stride length (SL) in mind when handicapping from the BreezeFigs sheet and take advantage of all the tips that we provide on those sheets as well.

Also, refer to a study we did which shows that using BreezeFigs for 3-year-old maiden races in just as viable as using them for 2-year-old maiden races. Go to the DRF PLUS box on the .
